Surprise! Trump doing what he said he would

Amid the frenzy, Trump and Vice President Pence were in almost constant contact with lawmakers about implementing the president’s agenda.

Trump courted lawmakers from both parties with fancy receptions and meetings at the White House and on Capitol Hill. Trump even jetted to Philadelphia to address Republicans gathered for the winter meeting on Thursday, where he laid out his priorities for the coming weeks.

Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.), a key Trump ally, summarized Trump’s action-filled first week with one word: “Firehose.”

“It’s refreshing and it’s energizing,” Reed told The Hill right after Trump spoke at the joint congressional GOP retreat. “I think it’s not only the nature of the president and his new town, and his bringing to the office a private-sector-based mentality. It’s also unleashing the power of the American people.”

“For so many years, it’s been a hamstrung by the bureaucracy of Washington and we’re cutting that red tape to empower the American people again.”
